Picking out the best throwing knives is not an easy job. Throwing knives specifically need to be constructed so that they have better aerodynamics and air time. The engineering allows them to glide through the air and pierce through the target effectively. To make your life easier, we have picked out the best throwing knives of 2016.
Smith and Wesson is well known for their firearms. But they also specialize in throwing knives. The SWTK8CP throwing knives are a great set for beginners costing just over $30. They come in a pack containing six knives, each 8.1-inch long.
They are made of high carbon 2Cr13 stainless steel and the knives are dual-edged. Also included is a sheath for holding the blades. Even though it is a great option for beginners, some have complained that the knives break quickly after continuous use.
They are easily one of the best looking throwing knives that you can find. The dual tone silver and black knives are gorgeous and have laser cut-outs on the handle which allows the user to tie ribbons onto it. The blades are five and a half inches long and are just a tad smaller than the Smith and Wesson knives. The Perfect Point RC-595-3 is made of stainless steel and the sheath that comes along with the pack is highly durable.
The knives are very well balanced and are relatively sharper than the other blades in the category. The RC-595-3 throwing knives are extremely durable, but shouldn’t be used on metal surfaces as it can cause them to break.
